Chris Tillman didn’t have it Sunday against the Rays, relinquishing eight hits and five runs (four earned) over 4 1/3 lackluster innings in a no-decision.
He registered five strikeouts while yielding a pair of free passes. Things were going alright for Tillman until Evan Longoria burned him for a three-run bomb in the fifth inning. Tillman also committed a throwing error that led to a run in the fourth. The right-hander has produced a hideous 8.39 ERA this year and hasn’t won since his season debut on May 7. He’ll get another stab at the Rays next Friday at Camden Yards. Jun 25 - 5:09 PM

Chris Tillman was pulled after giving up five runs in four-plus innings Tuesday against the Indians.

Probably as a lasting effect from his shoulder troubles, Tillman is pretty much throwing batting practice to major league hitters at this point. The Orioles are going to have to stop running him out there at some point, but they're really short on alternatives at the moment. Tillman has an 8.39 ERA through nine starts.
Jun 20 - 11:22 PM

Chris Tillman gave up five runs and 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the White Sox.

Tillman allowed just one through five before the sixth inning turned ugly, but he was still in trouble throughout the outing, as evidenced by all of the hits he gave up. To think that he was being talked about as a Cy Young candidate a year ago at this time; in 2017, he's 1-5 with an 8.07 ERA in eight starts.
Jun 15 - 6:00 PM

Chris Tillman allowed nine runs, including three home runs, over 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

Tillman gave up seven hits, with three of those leaving the yard. They were three of five homers hit by the Yankees on the day. It was the fourth consecutive loss for the 29-year-old, and his ERA has jumped from 3.52 to 8.01 in that span. Tillman will attempt to get back on track Thursday against the White Sox.
Jun 11 - 12:53 AM

Chris Tillman yielded five runs -- three earned -- over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Tillman walked four and gave up six hits, including a solo home run to Andrew Benintendi in the top of the third inning. The 29-year-old right-hander is sporting a brutal 5.65 ERA and 1.85 WHIP through six starts this season. Perhaps his shoulder still isn't quite right.
Jun 4 - 4:56 PM

Chris Tillman couldn’t even get through three innings Tuesday, yielding five runs across 2 2/3 frames in a loss to the Yankees.

Tillman didn’t give up a single home run in his first four starts this season, but he served up three in this one, with Brett Gardner and Matt Holliday taking him deep in the first inning and Holliday getting him again in the third. The righty surrendered seven hits in all, walked two and struck out just one. Tillman now holds an unsightly 16/11 K/BB ratio over 23 innings to go along with a 5.87 ERA. He’ll try to bounce back on Sunday against the Red Sox.
May 30 - 11:11 PM

Chris Tillman allowed four earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Twins.

Tillman was a mess out of the gate in this one, yielding three runs in the first inning and one more in the second. He gave up nine total hits along with two walks, falling to 1-1 with a 4.43 ERA through four starts. The veteran right-hander missed all of April with a shoulder injury.
May 24 - 3:49 PM

Chris Tillman posted a quality start in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Friday, allowing three runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

Tillman scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. All of the damage against him came during a three-run uprising in the fourth inning. Through his first three starts, the right-hander owns a 3.52 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 12/7 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings. His next assignment is a showdown against the Twins at home on Wednesday.
May 20 - 12:19 AM

Chris Tillman allowed three runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Royals.

Tillman threw 105 pitches, so stamina wasn't an issue; rather, he just wasn't very effective, leading to his early exit. It was a step backward after he tossed five scoreless frames in his season debut. Tillman will carry a 2.89 ERA and 1.71 WHIP into Friday's game against the Blue Jays.
May 13 - 10:52 PM

Chris Tillman worked five shutout innings against the White Sox to earn a win in his season debut on Sunday.

Tillman walked three but struck out four and held the White Sox to three hits -- all singles. He probably could have worked another inning, but the O's decided to play it safe with the veteran right-hander, who missed the first five weeks of the regular season with a shoulder injury. Tillman gets the Royals on the road next.
May 7 - 4:52 PM

Orioles activated RHP Chris Tillman from the 10-day disabled list.

Tillman will make his season debut on Sunday against the White Sox after recovering from a shoulder injury. The veteran right-hander was bombed for 13 runs and seven homers in four rehab starts, so it's going to be hard to trust him for fantasy purposes right out of the gate.
May 7 - 10:59 AM

Chris Tillman (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

Tillman is just about ready to make his regular-season debut. He will throw a bullpen in Baltimore on Friday and assuming that goes off without a hitch, the 28-year-old right-hander is expected to start against the White Sox on Sunday.

Chris Tillman (shoulder) is on track to make his 2017 debut Sunday against the White Sox.

Tillman allowed five runs over five innings in his fourth minor league rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Norfolk, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the reports were mostly good. The veteran right-hander probably shouldn't be trusted out of the gate in standard fantasy leagues coming off a fairly significant shoulder injury.
May 2 - 10:21 PM

Chris Tillman is scheduled to start for Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

There had been speculation that he could forego his last rehab start and pitch for the Orioles on Tuesday, but he'll get one final tune-up in the minors first. Look for him to rejoin the O's rotation next weekend.
Apr 29 - 11:45 AM

Chris Tillman (shoulder) has joined the Orioles in New York.

The Orioles still need to decide whether Tillman will rejoin their rotation on Tuesday in Boston. Tillman struggled in his three rehab starts and was sitting in the upper-80s in Thursday's outing, so it's possible the O's will have him make another tune-up start.
